Donegal hotel prepares for nuclear disaster and hopes to make some money in the process.

Jackson's Hotel in Ballybofey County Donegal is making an underground disco available as a nuclear shelter at a price of £250 a head.

Barry Jackson, manager of the hotel, describes the facilities on offer and believes that the disco could hold 400 people comfortably in the event of a nuclear accident.

He rejects the notion it is cashing in on people's fears as a result of the Chernobyl disaster.

When asked about the public interest in his venture Barry Jackson says,

We've had nobody paying up front yet.
